Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To be able to effectively charge only in a normal ink cartridge. SOLUTION: The ink cartridge 1 for a printer comprises a first electrode 5 formed on the outer surface with a predetennined pattern uneven part 4 and capable of being brought into contact with a second electrode provided at a pattern matching part capable of conforming to a pattern arranged on a printer body for receiving the cartridge. The pattern uneven part is provided on the outer surface of the bridge 1, and the pattern matching part is provided in a retaining frame provided in a printer body. The identifying device detects the matching properties of the uneven part 4 to the matching part to be able to identify the cartridge 1. Only when the first and second electrodes are provided on the uneven part 4 and the matching part and normal ink cartridge is mounted in the body, the first and second electrodes are closed to generate an identification signal.
